Skinny Cupcakes!


 

Okay, so I have to reblog this!  I found this on pinterest and decided to give it a try last Friday!  I am so pleased to announce that it was AMAZING!!  And how simple.

All it is, is a box of cake mix, the recipe says funfetti, but I did strawberry, and then add a can or 12 ounces of Sprite Zero, I used Diet 7up, because that is what I had.  Mix and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and voila!!!

I have not tried the frosting, as I didn’t have the instant pudding, so I did traditional buttercream frosting, but the cake was awesome!

 

Here is the blog I got this from:

Eggless Pumkpin Pie


I researched and tweaked a couple of recipes to get this Eggless Pumpkin Pie. I found a few recipes out there, and basically looked them all over and developed what I think is a great traditional pumpkin pie!! I am making two of these for my childs preschool Thanksgiving feast and I am not forgetting the Cool Whip. So here is the recipe if you have any egg allergies, no need for eggs here and it tastes great!! Just like true pumpkin pie. All my samplers agree!

I sometimes make the crust, although our family prefers a graham cracker crust! You choose with what your family likes!!

Colored Cupcakes


So I made my white wedding cake cupcakes for my daughters birthday.  But to add something fun we added food coloring swirled into each one. It was so easy to do and the kids loved it.

All you do is dip a toothpick into food coloring (liquid or gel)  and then swirl into the cupcake before baking.  Make sure to swirl deep to get the color  all the way to the bottom.

Look how great they turned out!!!
